Edgy Fashion | How To Get That edgy Look

I love so many things about the edgy fashion style. In the true sense, edgy fashion should push the boundaries of all that has gone before. So, every year it should be continuously pushing the boundaries of last years fashion trends. For me, I'm middle of the road edgy.. How about you?...

Gone are the days of baggy, frumpy grunge costumes or ghoulish caked-on Gothic makeup. Nowadays, fashionistas who like to wear a rock-and-roll aesthetic mix fresh faces with one dramatic feature, then mash up oversized tees and jackets with skin-tight pants and high ankle boots.

One of my favorite modern rocker fashion idols is Demi Lovato. I love how she wears tons of studs, spikes, and leather, but softens it all up with glamorous hair and makeup. Demi also frequently incorporates retro elements into her look, from '80s Madonna-esque jewelry to '40s pin-up girl hair. Zoe Kravitz is another awesome example - the way she mixes street chic staples with one or two edgy pieces is totally inspiring.

Getting That Edgy Fashion Look

Make A Statement

No matter where you are going, you need to make a statement when you walk into the room. You want people to stop and notice you. The best way to do that is by wearing a statement jacket.

If you don’t have a printed jacket, you can substitute it with a black leather jacket but I’d definitely recommend something bold.

Black on Black

Now that you have your statement jacket picked out, the next step is to pull out your black clothes. I recommend a pair of tight black jeans. In addition to the black jeans, pull out a black tank or basic t-shirt. Since you’ve already selected a bold jacket, you want to keep the rest of the look simple.

Edgy Fashion Means Skinny Jeans

Whether you prefer coated, mineral-washed, shredded, or plain, you just can't rock-and-roll without a trusty pair of skinny jeans. If the hem of your pants doesn't hit right at your ankle, cuff them two and a half times to elongate your legs and show off your killer footwear.

Love this look

For a fast and easy outfit, wear a pair of black skinny jeans with a Band T-shirt, canvas sneakers, and a military-inspired anorak or utility jacket.

For a night on the town, skinny jeans look great with a pair of sky-high ankle boots, party top, and a high ponytail. Finish with cool cat eye or some smoky eye makeup.

Studded Boots

Every girl needs both knee-high and ankle boots in their closet, but a studded pair of boots will do wonders for giving your wardrobe an edgy vibe. As for what type to buy, it's totally up to you! Whether you prefer flat boots, wedges, stilettos, knee-high, ankle-length, or somewhere in-between, they all look great in my book.

  • Wear studded boots with black leggings, a loose-fitting tee, and an oversized, distressed cardigan or denim jacket.
  • Roughen up a dainty dress with a pair of studded boots and a rock-chic hat.
  • Wear rocker boots with a pair of skinny jeans, a striped shirt, and a cropped leather jacket. Finish with an edgy multi-finger ring or other cool jewelry.

Distressed Denim Shorts

  • For a cute and laid-back look, pair denim shorts with a flannel shirt and canvas sneakers.
  • Wear denim shorts over opaque black tights and pair with studded boots, a tee, and a utility jacket.
  • These babies - especially the high-waisted varieties - look fantastic with band tees. Finish with tousled hair, combat boots, and a deep lip color.

Cropped Leather Jackets

You don't have to spend a ton of money to score a fantastic-looking cropped leather jacket.  Keep your eyes peeled for the perfect jacket and you'll be glad you did.

  • Toughen up a lace or tulle dress with a cropped leather jacket. This also helps stretch your wardrobe through different seasons!
  • Leather jackets are fantastic layering pieces. Mix up a jacket and a simple pair of skinny jeans with a leopard blouse, a striped boatneck shirt, a flannel shirt, or a graphic tee. Add a scarf for bonus points!
  • Have a loud pair of harem or patterned skinnies that you aren't sure how to style? Throw them on with a white v-neck and your trusty cropped leather jacket.

Corset Tops, Crops and Camis

Part of having a rocker-chic ensemble is looking sexy. Therefore, a corset top is a must-have, even if you're like me and don't feel comfortable showing a ton of your midsection.

Here are a few of my ideas to rock a corset without showing a ton of skin:

  • Pair a corset top with high-waisted jeans or shorts for extra coverage. Finish with huge sunglasses, and a cool kimono-style cardigan.
  • A corset top will look faboosh with a hi-lo skirt and a utility jacket.
  • Wear a corset with black skinny jeans and a chambray top layered over it, leaving it buttoned down halfway to let the corset peek through.

Edgy Jewelry

Some well-stacked edgy jewelry can make all the difference in making your outfit look intentional and awesome rather than ordinary. Look for inexpensive jewelry with a heavy weight and don't be afraid to layer several pieces at once.

  • My signature jewelry look is wearing lots of cool rings, so I have several knuckle rings, knuckle shields, two-finger rings, and more. Pick a piece that you love, and go crazy with it!
  • Leather wrap bracelets and chunky bangles have a rock-and-roll vibe to them. Look for ones with brass, copper, or gold embellishments.
  • Long, skinny earrings are a favorite of Demi Lovato and are flattering to every face shape.

Rock Star Sunglasses

Whether you stayed out late at a concert (or woke up super early to cram for an exam), every good rock-and-roll girl needs to have a huge pair of sunglasses readily available.

  • Ray Ban Wayfarers are classic and timeless, no matter what style you identify with. They look great with every face shape and are so thick and sturdy. Definitely worth the investment!
  • Aviators are another cool alternative. The cheap pairs from Walmart look just as good as designer styles!
  • I've been really into retro cat-eye sunglasses lately as well. Small round John Lennon-esque styles are fun, too.

Band T-shirts

Vintage-y (or, better, authentic original) concert t-shirts are a staple for girls with rock-and-roll style. The great thing is that they're available everywhere - seriously, everywhere! From Gap to Forever 21 to Hot Topic to Target, you'll never run out of inexpensive places to pick up band tees. Bonus points for rocking shirts you bought from concert merch booths!

  • Tuck a concert tee into a bandage skirt and finish with high-heeled studded boots.
  • Wear an oversized concert t-shirt with black leggings or skinnies and a boyfriend cardigan or blazer.
  • Wear a concert tee with a pair of harem pants and a signature hat.
